There are little red itchy bumps on my arms and left leg that look like insect bites but appear out of no where and burn under warm water. Any ideas?

Possible

Insect_bite
Some people can get a "heat rash" that worsens when the skin is hot and usually gets better when cooled. However, to really be certain you should have this problem examined.

I have red itchy marks on one side of my lower back which increase each morning and look like insect bites. Could this be bed bugs?

Wouldn't anticipate

Itching
bed bugs would only bite one particular area. Bites are usually in areas exposed while sleeping-arms, shoulders,neck & legs.

i went to the doctors over an itchy rash. dr thinks its insect bites or scabies, it hasnt cleared but is no longer itchy, what else could it be?

Still scabies

If you were treated forvscabies. The medicine can clear the infection but the inflammation will require several days for the skin to return to normal. During this phase a prescription topical steroid is useful. Also check for any other possible sources such as pets.

Tiny hard itchy knot insect bite?

Depends

Insect_bite
If recent bite and it is sore and red, it could be the start of an abscess or pus accumulation. If not recent it may just be scar tissue formed from repair of the bite damage. If you live in West Africa it could be the Tumbu fly larva living under your skin :(
